The Plymouth and District branch is run by a group of volunteers who work together to provide autism support, information and signposting. We have three different peer support groups: Autism Plymouth Parents Support Group, the Plymouth Autistic Adults Group and the West Devon Autistic Women's Group.
You are welcome to join one or all of the groups.
If you are keen to make a difference to the lives of autistic people and their families, to improve the understanding and acceptance of autism, and to volunteer at one of our groups then please get in contact with us.
We are currently looking for a fundraising volunteer to help us identify and apply for local grants for all three of our groups, as all of our groups are self-funded. If you are interested in this role then please do consider applying.
I am autistic. I don’t have autism and I am not a person with autism. I am autistic and I am proud of it.
NEW online branches
With regular meet-ups online, our charity's online branches are a social space for autistic people to reach out and seek peer support for a shared interest, identity, or experience. They're totally free to join, and may be a more accessible option to some than an in-person meet-up. All autistic people are welcome (under 16-year-olds must be supervised by an adult, and people that need more support must bring their support carer with them).
We currently have online branches for:
• Arts and crafts
• Book club
• Employment and the workplace
